Reactor pressure vessel inspection and non destructive examination using automated techniques (UT, ECT, RT, VT …)

Framatome provides a combined ultrasonic (UT) and visual testing (VT) system for the RPV inspection. This examination covers as much of the ligament material as possible. At the same time, a visual inspection of the head for crystallized residuals and stains is possible. The preparation and inspection from one single source minimizes the inspection time. The combination of UT and VT inspection techniques reduces the radiation exposure.
